About this recipe: Cheese fondue for me is not just any meal, but a wonderfully intimate meal with family or friends - cheese fondue is wonderfully filling and helps to reinforce the friendships of all those involved. The rule of thumb for the ratio of cheese to wine is: 200g cheese to 100ml wine.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 300-400ml Vaudois wine (or other Swiss dry white wine)
  • 600-800g coarsely grated Gruyere cheese, preferably from 2-3 different stages of maturity
  • 1 measure kirsch
  • 4 level tablespoon cornflour
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • grated nutmeg to taste
  • baguette, cut into bite-sized cubes
